Hearty salad features steak


June 24, 1998|By Elizabeth Large

Summer salads don't have to be dainty. This one will satisfy the heartiest appetite on a hot summer day.

Steak and Black-Eyed Pea Salad

Serves 2

8 ounces steak, cut in strips

1/2 cup canned black-eyed peas, drained

4 cups mixed salad greens

1/3 cup julienne carrot

1/3 cup julienne turnip

1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese

1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette

Combine ingredients and toss well.

Sweet newcomers: grape tomatoes

New this summer in supermarkets and specialty food stores: grape tomatoes. These are smaller than cherry tomatoes and grow in clusters. They have a pleasantly thick skin and burst with sweetness. Kids will eat them out of hand as if they were grapes, and they taste great in salads.
